Gadzhi Rabadanov Wants To Fight In Russia After Winning In Bellator Debut

Bellator lightweight star Gadzhi Rabadanov plans to fight the next time in Russia after knocking out Daniel Carey on Sunday at Bellator 263.

Maybe all the Dagestani martial artist needed was to notch his pro career’s 16th win in his Bellator debut because Bellator chief Scott Coker has already planned to hold an event at the VTB Arena in Moscow, Russia on October 23.

Rabadanov said he’s eager to register his name on the fight card as the promotion prepares to make its Russian debut. He assured his availability for the October card in the post-fight news conference.

“Maybe October in Moscow. If Bellator calls me, I’m ready. I don’t know, maybe next week I’m ready. I’m here,” the lightweight said.

He’s taking up training sessions under UFC legend and undefeated lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who retired in March.

It seems like Rabadanov doesn’t mind switching weight classes to make it big in Bellator and show fighters in multiple divisions the skillset he possesses.

“This is my first fight, it doesn’t matter,” the lightweight star added. “I want to smash everybody. It doesn’t matter. Featherweight guys, I’m here. I’m coming. I will be champion.”

If promotion decides to include the Dagestani MMA fighter, it will be interesting to see who they match him up against.
